Usually, when I get press releases about Ratt, I laugh. And laugh and laugh. Because who ever imagined Ratt would be part of the Roadrunner Records roster in 2010? Certainly not I, said the fly. But hernia surgery is no laughing matter.
Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy recently underwent urgent hernia surgery, and has made a full recovery. Pearcy is anxious to get back on the road with Ratt.
“Despite the forced break with my surgery, I’m feeling better and being out here on tour with the Scorpions is rehabilitating, to say the least,” Pearcy said. “We’re doing different songs from Infestation and they are going over great! We’re mixing up our set and kicking some ass. It’s a Scorpion sting with some Ratt ‘n’ Roll!”
Ratt and The Scorpions will continue their “World Infestation” tour, which was postponed to give Pearcy time to undergo the operation and to recover from it.
